Gravehill Reissue Rites of the Pentagram
GRAVEHILL’s Rites of Pentagram is how real death metal is done; no fruity keyboards, no emo or fake guttural vocals, no triggered drumming, no lame sub-par At The Gates wannabe riffs, no association with the word ‘core’ or a band name that is a sentence long and no cramming 5,000 riffs with political themed lyrics. Take notice, no warnings; the threat is real. The threat is even more real now that the album that Blabbermouth.net said contains “songs that ride chainsaw grooves and up-tempo gallops” is coming back under the black mark of Ibex Moon Records on July 6. The re-release of Rites of the Pentagram comes complete with new packaging and includes the five-song Metal of Death/ Advocation of Murder & Suicide EP. Originally released by Enucleation Records, Ibex Moon Records has taken this uncompromising slab of true death metal andmade it an essential part of any music fan’s collection. Rites of the Pentagram is but a precursor for the intensity to come when GRAVEHILL unleashes an album’s worth of new material later this year on Ibex Moon Records. The time of GRAVEHILL is upon us.
